With Father’s Day right around the corner, everyone is looking for the perfect father’s day gift. Well, what do you get for the man who has everything he wants and doesn’t want more stuff?
The key principle of minimalism is to reassess your priorities so that you can strip away the excess — the things that don’t bring value to your life (Wright). Practically, this means getting rid of meaningless things so that you have as few things as possible. This way you can be the most present, wherever you are. Minimalist intended to be a catalyst for shifting the focus off of our possessions and onto what is truly most important to us.
Here are a few father’s day gifts for the minimalist dad and their stumped family members.
Consumables are a great way to go for a Father’s Day gift that won’t add clutter but will add meaning. Make a big batch of dad’s favorite snack and divide in into easy to pack zip lock bags that he can grab and take to work. Purchase a quality self care product that would be a treat to have like a top of the line shaving cream or cologne.What do you get for the man who has everything he wants and doesn't want more stuff?

Vacations are a treat for the whole family ! Use this time of celebration to honor your dad with a family vacation to the mountains or book and airbnb by a beach nearby. Some of the most valuable things in life aren’t things at all. Money spent on time with the family is one guaranteed way to make your dad’s day!
Is your dad into fishing? Put together a surprise fishing trip for him and his fishing buddies for a long weekend. Thinking a bit more extravagant? Book a cruise for mom and dad; cover dad’s ticket and pay for a massage while he’s there!
Treat your dad to an activity that he’s always talked about doing but never made it happen like rock climbing, biplane rides, sky diving, a zip line tour or another fun, far fetched event. This way, your dad has no excuse not to go and enjoy those adventures he’s been putting off.
Choosing the best father’s day gifts for a minimalist dad may seem daunting but if you’re in doubt it’s always safe to just set up some quality time to get a cup of coffee. Nothing beats good conversation, being available and fully present for those that you love.
Happy Father’s Day Dad!
